Seriously, I like MBE approach to studies, - on Monday we had only one lecture (brief introduction to the topic) and then we are let to explore the topic as we wish….or almost as we wish. Basically, we were given a task and while doing it we are supposed to learn something new that will be stay with us for the rest our lives…Lets see!
So coming back to task, it is essential at first stage to develop a clear understanding of what actually is asked to do. “help WaveRiders develop its approaches to asset and knowledge management to meet the criteria of the European Excellence Model” At this point, I am confused. Should we study asset management and knowledge management separately? Or we should find out how knowledge management can contribute to asset management?
After answering this question and understanding if we need to study one or two topics, we then can find the EFQM criteria’s requirements concerning the topic/topics. Thus, if we talk about asset management, the EFQM criteria could be Partnerships & Resources. If we consider knowledge management, then EFQM criteria would be leadership, people and strategy.
To sum up, MBE approach to studies encourages you to ask more questions (just as with this task). And while you asking yourself, you create linkages between concepts, theories and studies and, thus, finally, came up with new findings and knowledge.
